Again, big thanks for sending good wishes our way.  My Mom is doing well, and all systems are “go” for me to return home tomorrow for a few days, and come back next week when she is discharged.  Check out the cloudy view from her hotel hospital room.  :)

Before my Dad and I went to the hospital this afternoon, we did some grocery shopping and came home via a fantastic beach/salt water lagoon that gave us some good photo ops.  My Dad was SURE we’d been there years ago, but I have no recollection of being here.  Pretty sure I’d remember….  However, come with us on our walk!!!

We found a little pool with dozens (maybe more) of these tiny sea “bugs” or “babies”….we have no idea what they are.  Anyone? (they did not sting/bite when they were on my finger)

And a pigeon photobomb too!

Speaking of “BOMBS”….this is why it is my lucky day.  I was photographing these two battling seagulls…they were dive bombing and squawking and having quite the mid-air fight….

and BOMB….the one of the right let loose and pooped on me.   All over my sweater, all over my arm, and all over my camera.  LUCKY!!!!  :)

I’m calling this “optical illusion duck”.  He looks like he has no head…  :)

And finally, on our way home tonight my Dad and I went to a viewpoint not far from my parent’s home.  Great clouds, great sky, damn cold!

Happy Long Easter Weekend to all!!!  May your luck shine, but may it NOT involve poop!  :)
